Free Mercury Collection Program Runs Through Sept. 30

Mercury collection program is free to anyone located in Michigan.

Published on: Aug 15, 2013

The Environmental Quality Company has partnered with The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Mercury Collection Project. This is an on-going effort to collect and properly recycle mercury.  Small and large business operations have traditionally been overlooked during mercury collection events.  The project's objective is to address this issue and promote a long-term solution for easily collecting and recycling of mercury.  The program is free to anyone located in Michigan – residents included. 

The program is easy.  Upon request, EQ will send a free collection bucket with a shipping box to your door via common carrier.  Each bucket will contain the easy-to-follow return instructions.  Once the bucket is filled with the mercury containing device(s), just simply apply the return label (provided with your bucket), securely tape the box, and place it where the designated shipper normally picks up your packages.   EQ will facilitate the recycling of the mercury containing devise(s). Most mercury items can be returned through this mail-back program.  Some examples of eligible mercury containing devises include: thermometers, thermostats, gauges with silver colored liquid inside, dental amalgam, hydrometers, etc.
